the pressure on president obama to intervene in the syrian war. all that after last week, the white house said that basha bashar alasaad probably used chemical weapons, but they said it was a small amount. it does seem to contradict what president obama said earlier about a red line that the regime couldn't cross. >> i keep feeling i've seen this movie before in bosnia. and i really do liken syria to bosnia, not libya and all the other. bosnia. in bosnia, the united states did not want to accept there was an ethnic cleansing or genocide going on. all sides were equally guilty. it took a final massacre. it has been tried and they've been charged with genocide, the culprits. here, 70,000 casualties, two years later and the president laid down not just his red line, but the kper national communities red line. also, the president doesn't like it. it is a violation of the laws of war. it's a crime that the world has to deal with. i was interviewed and i have been doing this for weeks and months. and this week, we have had two eyewitnesss, basically, inside syria who have told us about what they saw
